NEW PAINTING! And other stuff. [Apr. 10th, 2006|09:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
First off, I have a wonderful new fantasy painting - it is a stunningly beautiful piece combining my love of faeries, our environment, and outer space. A lovely wide eyed fairy cradling our planet earth - swirling with clouds - out in the starry deep space. It's really cool! Click the link below to see it.....

"A World in Good Hands"




In addition I have a newly-finished number #01 Limited Edition hand-embellished prints for my "Three Wise Faeries" and "Fairy Odalisque" pictures - (14"x11") - each is the first of the edition, numbered #01/25. Click below to see them:

"Three Wise Faeries" Canvas Print

& "Fairy Odalisque" Canvas Print

And then I have a couple of new "MINI" paintings - tiny 3"x5" original acrylic paintings set at a fixed price of just $50 each - these tend to sell fast, so grab one if you can! I apologize in advance if they have already sold out, hehe!

"Eyes in Anticipation" mini painting

& "Emerald Eyed Cutie" mini painting

And now I have the BRAND NEW print sale for my open edition "Three Wise Faeries" and "Fairy Odalisque" prints!

The direct links are:

In other news, I got my official "congratulations" letter from Spectrum! They have picked "Funeral for a Long Dead Knight" to go into the new book! That's one of my personal favourites, and it is a pretty darned good painting, so I'm very happy with their choice.

And oh yes - I will try to get some screencaps of my art's cameo on Smallville very soon!

Good night all!

World is nice! Reminds me I have to get a tattoo consult soon. I'm hoping to have my mood covered with a globe of some sort, like a satellite picture.

Funeral is one of my favorites, definitely one of the prints I'll be wanting!

Oh wow, even the wings have earth designs on them. Beautiful.

I watched Smallville, searching for your work, but couldn't spot it. Looking forward to the screencaps.

I'll have to watch it closely myself, but I think it's in a dorm room in the beginning and then in Lex Luther's house later, hehe.

Thank you Kayti!

Smallville is a TV show in the WB (Warner Brothers network) about Superman when he was in highschool/college. I haven't watched it before this, but I know it's a popular show (a lot of my LJ friends seem to watch it!).

I'm glad they picked Funeral for a Long Dead Knight. I think that's my favorite of all your paintings. I was so impressed when you did that one --I had it as the wall paper on my computer for a long time! James really likes that one too. That's cool!!! I guess Spectrum has good taste.

I love how you painted the world. And she is in good hands indeed. Very pretty painting.

well, you could probably guess that I'd be thrilled to see a fairy with green eyeshadow :-D
She's beautiful! And so sad looking....but it's lovely.

I would like to know if you could do an art piece for me?

I've been wanting some art work done for me for a long time now. I would like to know if you wouldn't mind doing this for me. Just to give you an idea of what I'm looking for is art of a fairy (which you do really well) holding a little baby boy with the night sky and stars. Also I would like to know if you are able to draw men, I would like my husband a part of the art work also. Then maybe a dragon. If you are able to do this for me it would be the greatest thing in the world. Please let me know. Thank you, Tyffiney

Re: I would like to know if you could do an art piece for me?

Hi Tyffiney!

Thank you so much for your interest in my artwork! =)

Oh, hehe - I can paint just about anything and anybody, male or female (normally when it's up to me though I mostly paint girls because I love painting long hair, jewels, makeup, fancy dresses, etc.) =)

Indeed - yes I do a lot of custom paintings! Since art is of course my full-time job I do it strictly on a commissioned basis. My pricelist and commission policies can be found here:

http://www.strangeling.com/commissions.html

Right now I have so many commissioned custom paintings lined up that I do have quite a bit of a waiting list - I am currently booked up through mid/late August. So if you are interested in commissioning me please email me at JasmineToad@aol.com - let me know the size of the painting (my sizes are on my pricelist in the link above) and the approximate date you would like to begin. I can pencil you in as early as August 15th, I'm sorry but any time before that I am already booked up. Please email me if you have any further questions!
